I feel like Text::Autoformat ought to do the right thing with ASCII art tables, e.g.: +------------+-----------+-----------+-----------+ |hex bin |hex bin |hex bin |hex bin | +------------+-----------+-----------+-----------+ |0 0000 |4 0100 |8 1000 |C 1100 | |1 0001 |5 0101 |9 1001 |D 1101 | |2 0010 |6 0110 |A 1010 |E 1110 | |3 0011 |7 0111 |B 1011 |F 1111 | +------------+-----------+-----------+-----------+ (i.e. leave them alone). The current version (1.13) tries to fill them normally, with horrible results, e.g (with all => 1). +------------+-----------+-----------+-----------+ |hex bin |hex bin |hex bin |hex bin | +------------+-----------+-----------+-----------+ | 0000 |4 0100 |8 1000 |C 1100 | 1 0001 |5 0101 |9 1001 |D 1101 | 2 | 0010 |6 0110 |A 1010 |E 1110 | 3 0011 |7 0111 |B 1011 |F 1111 | +------------+-----------+-----------+-----------+

I agree. That's why that very feature is scheduled to be added to the next major release. :-) Thanks, Damian
